tl;dr version:

EuroGamer posts a scathing review of Darkfall, giving it a 2/10, which is, apparently, the lowest rating ever given. Darkfall devs check the logs and claim that the reviewer played for less than 2 hours, with most of that time spent in character creation.

Ed writes like a 20-something forum-faller whose only experience in gaming was WoW. Notice his shock at actually having to drag items into his pack.

Tasos defending the company honor from a low-blow cheap shot aside, the Darkfall and MMORPG.com forums are filled with plenty of Ed's who have been shit talking the game for months. It seems a bit nonsensical to worry about this crap when people are being turned away daily by the lack of game accounts. They're dragging their asses on expanding the servers and more servers are the first step toward a NA launch. They should focus on a NA launch. Once it happens, no one will have remembered what some dipshit Euro said in the first place.

Aventurine have always been their own worst enemy.

I give it a 0 out of 10, so now that's not the lowest rating ever.
